Five Years of Performances, Exhibits and Recitals, One Year of Celebration
The River Campus officially turns five this year, and for its anniversary celebration, the public was invited to see all the facility has to offer.
To officially kick off the year-long celebration, the River Campus invited the public to visit on Saturday, Sept. 17. Free tours and performances were available for the entire family. Music recitals to cabaret performances to art exhibits and handson activities were offered on rotating schedules to allow audience members to move from place to place and participate in multiple events.
“We think this was a really great opportunity for anyone who loves to come to our events or who hasn’t attended a performance or exhibition yet to see our talented performers and artists,” says Rhonda Weller-Stilson, interim director of the Earl and Margie Holland School of Visual and Performing Arts.
In addition to the anniversary festivities, the 2011-2012 season is underway and brings the best performances from national touring companies as well as the Departments of Art, Music and Theatre and Dance. Performances this season include Mel Brook’s Young Frankenstein, The Pajama Game and Vivaldi’s Gloria. The River Campus Art Gallery and the Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum have 16 exhibitions scheduled from local and national artists.
